Europe’s NGO Jihad Against Israel

There is a European “jihad” against Israel. A significant number of activist groups — presenting themselves as international humanitarian aid and charitable projects designed to benefit the Palestinian people — are actually “directly or indirectly active in Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions(BDS) campaigns, lawfare, delegitimization and lobbying against Israel,” according to a detailed report by NGO Monitor.

Every year, European governments send hundreds of millions of dollars for humanitarian aid projects in Palestinian territories. Ostensibly, the money is intended for projects such as improving medical care, alleviating poverty, improving schools, or enhancing infrastructure.

But beneath the surface lurk more venomous political advocacy agendas apparently designed to undermine Israel as a nation-state.

    I really do hope Israel sooner than later politically and economically disengages from the EU.They are little different than Iran.

    There is no reason why Israel can’t place these organizations on the list that fosters terrorism, with all the penalties that incurs.

  • There is no doubt that what this article says is true – the EU, both directly and through NGO financing, is actively working towards the demise of the Jewish State. So is the Obama administration. It seems as if the Israeli government has not yet realized the enormity of the danger this poses.
